UCLA coach Jim Mora's Twitter account goes on strange journey
In the latest development of Jim Mora's Twitter struggles, the UCLA head coach tweeted out a photo Thursday of five-star recruit Maea Teuhema photoshopped in a Bruins uniform, as captured by Bruins Nation.
Why is this a problem? Because coaches aren't allowed to publicly talk about recruits who have not signed with the school.
The error was quickly discovered, leading to Mora's account to claim that it was not only hacked, but "has not represented Mora" since Jan. 3.
This isn't the first time Mora's account has been deactivated. After a Twitter war involving Mora following the recent Alamo Bowl, Mora's account disappeared, only for him to apparently reappear under a new private account, before his original account came back less than a week later. How's that for Twitter entertainment?
